Description:

The Maritime Museum of San Diego makes her historic ships available for wedding venues in a truly iconic setting. You may choose the lovely 1898 Berkeley Ferryboat, which offers turn-of-the-century charm and ambiance for your perfect wedding. The ship has two open-air decks, offering your choice of downtown skyline or sunset views of the harbor for your intimate ceremony. The Ladies’ deck and dance floor are also crowned with Victorian styled stained glass windows, softly backlit after dark. Another option is the majestic Star of India, which is one of the most unique wedding location in Southern California, if not the world. This vessel is the oldest active sailing ship in the world. Built in 1863, she has circled the globe 21 times with her soaring masts and spars that support her white billowing sails. Your wedding ceremony will be celebrated in timeless elegance and unparalleled beauty. For a truly timeless and memorable wedding these historical ships will provide a magnificent backdrop.
